Harwood House is an excellent place to stay for flying out from Stansted Airport (a taxi is £32 return from the airport, and takes around 10 mins). Both the house and the family made me feel at home immediately. My only regret is that I couldn't stay longer, the village looks like a lovely place to explore! :)

This B & B was a perfect location for my sons wedding at Maidens Barn. The co-owner Ian greeted us warmly when we arrived just after lunchtime and was extremely helpful with directions to the wedding venue and in booking taxi's as a good price for the return trip. We booked 3 rooms and all were very clean, of good... More

Ian and Helen are lovely hosts who make you feel welcome as soon as you arrive. Great Dunmow is a charming little English village, with plenty of places to eat and drink and a nice little high street. The rooms are very clean but the bathrooms small, with a strange (very English) shower set up. Ian cooks the breakfast himself... More

Harwood House is an excellent place to stay either for visiting the area or flying out from Stansted. The rooms are immaculate in both cleanliness and standard of decor, and you are assured of a warm welcome. The proprietors genuinely want to make your stay comfortable and will go the extra mile to ensure this happens. Breakfast is freshly cooked... More

Not only did the hosts, Ian and Helen, welcome us with open arms, but they also provided parking onsite while we were away and provided return Stanstedt airport transfers for a very nominal cost. The accommodations were modern, comfortable, attractive and the breakfast superb. Their recommendation of the Angel and Harp for dinner was a very good one.

As we were flying out at 8.30 am and needed to be at the airport 2 hours prior, we made an overnight stop at Harwood House. Quite simply very clean, very helpful and very friendly with extremely comfortable beds!

We stayed here the night before a 6am flight from stansted. We have already booked to stay again before our next holiday. The owners were really accommodating and recommended a great restaurant for supper. The room was immaculate & very comfortable. Ian was at the door at 4am ready to take us to the airport which is only about 10mins... More

Stayed for one night as we were attending a golden wedding anniversary. We were caught in a traffic jam and arrived later than anticipated. The owner was friendly, understanding and very attentive to our needs (he even arranged our taxis to and from the venue). The rooms are clean pleasant and warm and the beds are comfortable.
